Izzy Kline Has Butterflies

(2) 4-6 Fourth grader Izzy has her share of common woes--mean girls, school anxiety, play auditions, Dad's new girlfriend, an older brother who's retreating into "the teenage nation," and a new friend with a secret (she's a cancer survivor). Our window into Izzy's world is a series of short, episodic first-person prose poems adding up to a well-rounded portrait of a thoughtful character.
